About Mrs. Gabriele Larson...
Position: Pre K Teacher
Welcome! PreK is a wonderful time for discovery, exploration, and growth. Teaching young children is my passion and I look forward to working with you as we help your student build a lifelong love of learning.
My Education and Professional Background
After receiving a B.S. in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University, I taught for several years in Utah and Pennsylvania before taking time to raise four children.
Now, my favorite place to be is the Pre-K classroom. I taught at a private preschool from 2014 to 2019 while completing a graduate degree in early childhood education at Arizona State University.
I have been teaching Pre-K at Riggs since 2020 and I love it here!
My Educational Philosophy
Quality preschool education includes opportunities for cognitive, physical, verbal, social and emotional development. Our classroom will encourage growth in each of these areas as we participate in whole group, small group and free-choice learning activities.
Every day we work on math, literacy, sensory, art, music and language skills. Pre-K is an important bridge between home and kindergarten. Our classroom team (teacher and paraprofessionals) will enjoy building this bridge with you.
